Get me, two posts in one day!!!
I have managed to make a card to play along with two of my favourite challenges and a NEW challenge! The new challenge is The Card Concept. I'm pretty sure most of you have seen it around, despite the fact it's only into it's third challenge it has a MASSIVE presence already! Well done guys! I did mean to play along from the beginning, but we all know what happens to even the best laid plans... but anyway, I made it this time which is kinda strange as the challenge this time around is monochromatic pink. Now, me and pink, we have a love hate relationship. I'd love to love it, and it is growing on me, but it's definitely not a go-to colour for me. That said, this card came to me seemingly out of nowhere whilst sat at my desk trying to make a completely different card! I'm don't know exactly what that says about my brain, but I am sure that Freud would have had a field day!
Yes, I attacked this card with ink pads! I thought this was going to be a real QACAS (Quick and Clean and Simple - as coined by the ever so masterful with words Darnell :) ) but it took me an AGE to decide on the sentiment!!! It was actually ridiculous how long it took. I went through every single sentiment stamp I own...which in fairness doesn't take that long! I have seen you guys and your stamp collections and it makes me super jealous! I can fit every stamp I own into a drawer 10cm x 23cm (about 4" x 8" for those of you over the pond!) I need to work on that, once I've won the lottery!
I had fun making this little chap (chapette as it's all pink?!) and it's as close to a one layer card as I think I'm ever going to get :)
The other challenges that this card is heading off to are;
CAS(E) This Sketch #83
and CAS-ology #82 - BOLD
This is the inspiration image for The Card Concept - I wish I could do that shabby chic thang! Until then, picking out the different shades of pink will just have to do :)
